You will deny it to the last breath
The switch is wrong and must be changed --that means it is not right John !

Jesse's posts were ,as far as I looked into each answer, also wrong and misleading
the one relating to -lXdamage for instance. He made the statement "one problem leads to another "under his rant. That was wrong - the libraries wern't as they should be admittedly but the post was totally misleading .

If you can't stand criticism and constructive criticism at that then don't post
